About this Conference
The causes and effects of large wildland fires are the subjects of great debate among fire researchers, managers,and policymakers. Are large wildfires unnatural events, causing great ecological harm that should be suppressed at all costs? Or could they provide opportunities to reduce fuel loads, restore altered ecosystems, and improve resiliency in the face of climate change? What are the latest research findings, management treatments, and policy initiatives addressing large wildfires? Join us for this unique event co-hosted by the Association for Fire Ecology and the International Association of Wildland Fire with support from the Joint Fire Science Program, where we will explore these questions and related issues.
